JEC members coordinate meeting through the WhatsApp group if you wish.
We met on a bright, sunny April Sunday at the Garryvoe Hotel for lunch, which was then followed by our AGM. We had an impressive turnout of members, although a significant number of our stalwarts were unable to attend due to Covid illness. Our thoughts are with you, and we hope you make a speedy and full recovery!Continue reading “Lunch and the AGM at Garryvoe”
We plan to meet for lunch at the Garryvoe Hotel on Sunday 3rd April, to eat at 1pm. This will be followed by our AGM, as part of which we will arrange the Calendar of Events for 2022. It’s the first opportunity we will have had to meet in person in quite some time, so we encourage as many members as possible to attend. We are looking forward to a good turn out!
We wish all of our members and friends of the Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club a very merry Christmas. We managed to get together a couple of times in 2021, when restrictions and common-sense allowed. Things will improve, and we’ll make the most of it as and when they do. Stay tuned to the website and Facebook page for updates.

On Saturday 26th June, our first outing took place at Doneraile Court, Co Cork. Located off the M20 between Cork and Limerick, Doneraile Court estate, parkland, gardens and house was an ideal location to meet up for our get-together and picnic with Covid-19 restrictions in place.Continue reading “Report and Photos from Doneraile Trip”
Please be at Doneraile Court at 11.30am as parking will have to be arranged. As a result of Covid-19 restrictions only 4 people together can visit the house per hour. Our first group will be at 12 noon followed by 1pm, 2pm and 3pm, others may not wish to visit the house.
The restaurant/coffee shop is open and there are also toilet facilities. Please bring a picnic with you and fold up chairs if you have them. We plan to leave at approx. 4pm.
I look forward to meeting everyone after such a long time. Please be mindful of Covid-19 restrictions and that it is still with us. Fingers crossed we will have good weather and an enjoyable day.

Michael will be sending out a reminder text over the weekend, please respond with your attention to attend so as we can arrange the house viewings.
Our AGM last year was held in the Garryvoe Hotel. This year, due to our enforced separation, we met on Zoom. No comparison between the two venues, and we’re hoping that everybody’s situation improves through 2021 so that we normality before 2022. Here’s hoping!Continue reading “AGM 2021”
